2NE1's 'Crush' Is First K-Pop Entry on Year-End World Albums Chart
The girl group ends a year of accolades by breaking one more record.
After breaking multiple chart records earlier this year, 2NE1 cap off 2014 with one more boundary-pushing victory.
The girl group's Crush album ranks at No. 11 on Billboard's year-end World Albums chart. It's the first time a K-pop act has notched an entry on the annual ranking that was first introduced in 1995.
Released in February, Crush became K-pop's highest-charting album while also earning the best first-week sales for a release. The set hit No. 61 on the Billboard 200 -- 2NE1's first entry on the chart.
